For anyone who is familiar with Scottish history and the massacre at Glen Coe, this is why the MacDonalds do not trust the Campbells. You definitely want a guide or a local to tell you the story as you climb up the valley. It's a beautiful spot with spectacular peaks in every direction. But it's also unforgiving and deadly in...

We stayed close by and drove through a couple of times during Hogmanay weekend. The weather wasn't particularly kind, with Storm Frank blowing through, so we weren't inclined to do any of the walks on this occasion, but nevertheless, it is such a dramatic and beautiful landscape that we had to post a comment. There is a very good visitor... More

The views in Glencoe are breathtaking. You are surrounded by huge mountains and vast valleys. Every corner you turn there is a lake or a waterfall or whatever life. One of my mist favourite places in Scotland.

Stopped here on our coach tour to Loch Ness the views are stunning. Our guide told us about the Massacre of Glen Coe. I think it has to be one of the best views in Scotland.

From all my research everyone had said that it was a must to drive through this area. Even though it was taking us a longer route it is a must. The scenery of the Scottish lowlands & highlands are beautiful but this is truly breathtaking & dramatic. A must do.

Glen Coe is simply the most magnificent glen anywhere in the British Isles. Driving down into the glen from Rannoch Moor is a simple awe inspiring sight as the road falls away in front of the car and sweeps majestically towards the sea in the distance. It is really difficult to take in the sights while driving so it is... More

I've visited Glencoe at all times of the year, sometimes just enjoying the view on the drive through and at other times spending days walking and climbing on the hills. The weather was dreadful on this visit and the views were limited by low cloud. We didn't venture far from the car yet the atmosphere was still incredible and the... More

You just have to go there and see it yourself. I was just disappointed that our tour bus did not stop long enough to see the view and wonder how mother nature could make a place so beautiful
